Little Rockers Kids Marathon

The Little Rockers Kids Marathon celebrating its 10th year is an event that gives children, ages 7-12, the opportunity to complete a modified marathon over an extended period of time. Kids complete 25.2 miles prior to race day using the Little Rockers Kids Marathon Training Program, presented by Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Participants have several months to complete the miles on their own or through their school (if their school is officially participating in the program) by running, jogging or walking. On March 2, 2013, all participants finish their marathon as they run the last mile of the actual course and cross the official Little Rock Marathon finish line.

The mission of the Little Rockers Kids Marathon is to provide participants ages 7-12 with the opportunity to enhance their physical activity while focusing on reaching a goal. We hope to motivate children to commit to a health and fitness routine and experience the overall rewards of achieving their goals, not only in crossing the finish line but in life as well.

If you would like to start a program at your child's school, place of worship, community or civic group, please contact:
